CDS Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Training

Federally mandated for all Medicaid waivers, anyone who provides PAS/HAB and Respite services is now required to use an electronic visit verification system for tracking time.


Contracting through the Texas Health and Human Services agency, “First Data” is the EVV Vendor Imagine Enterprises selected to coordinate time keeping services. The name of the software is “AuthentiCARE” which can be accessed through a mobile device or two other methods.


The Texas Health and Human Service agency requires Imagine Enterprises to provide training and support to all CDS employers, designated representatives and employees that we serve, and obtain verification of their participation. Failure to do so will may result in financial hardships for the people we serve and their employees.


To prepare you for electronic timekeeping and to assist Imagine Enterprises staff to keep up with the mandates, Imagine will provide individual training and support as needed so that you may continue to benefit from the CDS option.
